Toast Stacks

No offense to peanut butter, but when it comes to recovery toast you can stack on a more inspiring combination of ingredients to deliver the carbs and protein you need to revive after a tough workout. Enjoy these even more by using crusty bread from a local artisanal baker. For an even bigger dose of recovery carbs, use a toasted bagel.
